This panel will discuss the evolving digital landscape and the need for a global approach that fosters people's trust through a fair deal for users, real competition, transparency in data protection and practices, fair taxation and responsible banking in a digital environment.

Panelists will discuss the improtance of incentives and recognition in reinforcing repsonsible behaviour, short-term versus long-term visions and, drawing on their own experiences, how to measure success. The participants will also discuss challenges to responsible models in the new political environment.
